23 October


I spent most of Saturday rearranging the bedroom. Joe had to work crazy hours so as soon as he left I got to work. He didn’t get home till about midnight (he had to work overtime) and was a bit confused when he came to bed. I’m so thankful that he’s such a great sport though, he just went with it. “It looks great, honey!” He said minutes before he started snoring.

My mum treated me to dinner on Saturday evening. We walked around the corner to a little restaurant on the harbour. She moved here when I was not quite two years old....which was a very long time ago, but we never tire of this beautiful view. It’s just so pretty. I’m so thankful that I live here and that my mum is still around to share a lovely evening with. 

It may seem rather ordinary to most folks but a pumpkin placed just so brings me so much joy.

I haven’t made this butter pecan banana cake in about 10 years but I stumbled across the recipe a few weeks ago and made it again. It didn’t disappoint. 

I am so very thankful for October mornings.
